Fishwrap

Constitution? Oh, yeah, that old thing.


Hillary 2016

Hard core Leftists desperately look forward to Hillary-the-"Light-bringer" (Lucifer I guess) messiah who can do no wrong and will lead them to a Marxist paradise. She says that her vice president of choice is Chris Christie. 

Stuck in the Ice

I'm sure that you have all heard of the plight of the MV Akademic Scholaskiy, filled with Australians and other climate change whacks who are still trapped in sea ice that they sought to prove had melted.  (Fox News)

Somehow it tickles my funny bone that their ship is being squeezed to the point of rupturing the hull by the very ice they said was thin. A Chinese Ice Breaker could only get within ten miles of them. Another Australian ship is standing by about thirty miles away on the edge of the ice sheet, ready to extract them when their ship founders, crushed like an egg under the heel of boot.

Fat Barbie

Progressives say yes to a white one - no to a black one with a monstrous ass. Mattel wouldn't want to be viewed as a racist company.

A fat Oprah doll would sell big to all her fans as a collectable, but I don't think that one has been produced. You could dress it in a white elvis jumpsuit (XXXL).

As I understand it, Mattel also pulled their Star Wars wookie doll from the shelves because people began to confuse it with a famous person.

Are There NO LIMITS on Taxation?

Nerd and daughter would likely be exempt from tax.
Chicago wants to tax bicycles (Fox News). It makes sense. As soon as people buy off on the 'green agenda', the progressives want to tax bicycle use. Bicycle friendly residents suggested a shoe tax to pedestrians for using the sidewalk. I'm sure that got the Chicago bureaucrats and bean counters working on that concept.
In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made bike lanes and bike programs a signature issue, believing it makes downtown an attractive place for bright young people and innovative companies. More bikes means less pollution, less traffic congestion, practically zero wear and tear on the city's roads and a healthier population.
Here's a concept. Smaller government - less need to tax. Naturally that wouldn't appeal to bloated bureaucrats who increase their pay by enlarging their personal kingdoms on the backs of taxpayers. I've been waiting for Southern California to tax sunshine (if they were only able to run it through a meter).
